First of all, I guess I should explain that the name of the film isn't
actually Young People Frolicking. The third word is actually another that
begins with 'f" and ends with "cking." It's a common variant of the one which
you can't say on TV, and which we also don't type in this blog because ...
well, because we are some classy motherfrolickers.
I'm not using a euphemism to describe the act, but only to disguise the
actual word. It's simple enough to create phrases which describe the forbidden
acts in a colorful way. For example, if I say "they were laying some tile on
the floor," or "he entered through the servant's entrance," or "he was jackin'
the beanstalk," you all know what I mean. Except maybe for some of you who
went to public schools. But there are times when I absolutely need to show you
that I'm using one of Carlin's forbidden words, either because I'm quoting
directly or because I'm trying to get a certain effect. In that case I always
use what the Ancient Greeks called EUEUEU, or Euphrosyne's Euniversal
Euphemisms. By the way, I know how to spell "universal," but the Greeks did
not, which is one of the main reasons why they were consistently the
second-most ridiculed people in the ancient world, after the Medes. And the
Medes shouldn't even count because they were, in Aristotle's words, "douchebags
to the last man-jack."
Of course, one must admit that Greeks' poor spelling contributed less to the
ridicule than the fact that their men wore those silly dresses and had sex
with male children. Despite their silliness, our language is forever indebted
to theirs, not only for "pedophilia," but for more important words and
concepts like "democracy," "academy," and "ha-cha-cha."
At any rate, the Euniversal Euphemisms I use are these:
I normally refer to the thing that goes into the client as the "server,"
irrespective of the word used in the original context. It's an exception to
the rule. Interestingly, the Greeks also invented exceptions. Before them,
everything had to be consistent. When Hammurabi added a rule to his code,
there were no exceptions at all, not even for Mrs. Hammurabi and the kids.
Perhaps some of you are wondering why I don't simply use asterisks for this
purpose, as I did above. The answer is that I am deathly afraid of asterisks.
As a child, I was traumatized when my mother forced me to watch The Mike
Douglas Show and it happened to be the famous episode when one of those giant
asterisks fell off Mike's gaily decorated wall and nearly killed Enzo Stuarti.
Young People Frolicking is a Canadian film, which is not surprising because
all Canadian films are basically about frolicking. Except for frolicking and
snacking, there isn't much else to do for entertainment in Canada after the
first week of July, when they settle in for another 11 1/2 months of winter.
Of course, there is the Toronto Film Festival to break the monotony, but
that's not much use to us celebrity nudity fans. I mean the September weather
in Toronto doesn't offer many opportunities for us to see celebrities romping
topless on the beaches or wearing skimpy red-carpet dresses. And I always find
Toronto premieres a little cruel. Do you know how many huskies it takes to
pull a stretch limo?
I didn't know anything about this film in advance and when I saw the title
I was filled with dread. I thought it was going to be another one of those
pretentious and oh-so-serious films where the director haughtily flaunts his disdain
for conventional mores, ala 9 Songs or Lie With Me. After all, the title just
cries out, "Look at me. I'm just so self-consciously audacious that you can
tell how superior I feel to you church-goin' rubes."
Thank God I was wrong because I hate that kind of movie. The people who
make those films tend to take all the fun out of sex and can't seem to
distinguish between erotica and explicitness.
This film is actually a pleasant, down-to-earth and conventional repertory comedy
about modern relationships .... well ... modern straight, white, polite,
middle-class relationships, to be more accurate. The title
serves several purposes. First, it describes what the film is
about. Second, it is part of the film's humor. Third, it is designed to
attract attention and publicity to a small, non-marquee film which might otherwise get lost in
The film basically demonstrates that the process of love-making follows a
certain path and moves in defined steps, irrespective of how well the partners
know one another. To make the point, it takes five couples (well, one is a
threesome, to be technical) at totally different stages in their relationships
and relates how one act of intercourse develops for each couple. The film is
divided into six chapters which represent the stages of an evening's
seduction, and the narrative cuts back and forth among the stories. One of the
couples is on a first date; one is comfortably married; one consists of exes;
one is a pair of long-time friends trying to have their one and only lifetime
sportfuck; the last is the threesome, in which a man persuades his girlfriend
and male roommate to have sex with one another while he watches.
Young People Fucking works. I don't normally like ensemble relationship
comedies any better than the self-consciously arty pseudo-erotica I was
dreading, simply because there are so many pitfalls they can fall into. This
film avoids all the problems by negotiating the balance between zany and warm;
as well as that between contrived and realistic. The characters are
recognizable, complex and as credible as can be expected from a comedy which
has to deliver a certain quota of laughs. The script takes enough time
to develop each of the five mini-plays so that the emotional resonance of the
scenes can shine through the comic set-ups. You will not like every single
character, but even the coldest ones (the first date couple) have
vulnerabilities and insecurities which make them sympathetic to some degree,
and the eleven actors do quite a good job at making the audience members feel
as if they were eavesdropping on real situations. Best of all, the film
approaches the subject matter with honesty to match its good humor, and you
may even be moved in a couple of spots.
Plus there's plenty of topless nudity from some beautiful women with their
own factory-original breasts. (And a couple of firm male butts for those
inclined to enjoy that component of the action.)
Young People Frolicking offers the breasts of some gorgeous mainstream
actresses who all have their original factory equipment. It is also a pleasant
if unchallenging way to pass 80-some minutes.

There are two ways
to see the clips:
The first method is to sign up for
Uncle Scoopy's Fun House, in which
these clips, plus about a million pictures and more than 30,000 film
clips are hosted on our servers. The Fun House was the internet's
original celebrity nudity site, having been in existence since
November of 1995, and having been updated every single day with a new
edition since July of 1997 - four thousand consecutive days without
ever missing an update. About 3700 of those updates are still
available in the archives - that's every one since May of 1998!
The second method is to download the clips through
Rapidshare. You will not need a premium account to get them all for
free, but their free download system will cause you some waiting
periods in between downloads. Here are the free links:
